's typically not a mission of a city to go to an international destination. we've got a state department, we've got the military, we've got a lot of organizations at the federal level that do this all the time. so it seems a little bit of a one-off for a city to be involved. but when i say it's a story of people and a story of community, it really does start right there. last halloween, so we're talking on the eve of -- in the aftermath of fleet week, as it were, october is a really busy month for us here in san francisco. it starts off with fleet week and it ends with halloween so it's two cresendo events. last halloween diana who you see running around here, key to the organization, who does most of the logistics to make this happen, and i went to get dinner at a local establishment. it's called hays and kabob and we went to get dinner on our way to the operations center hoping nobody would celebrate too much so we could get out of there at a decent hour. when we went there, we were both in our black eem polos and we started talking to the owner and he said, oh, did you hear about the

no other city will ever have to repeat again. but the bottom line is it is so critical at this point to talk about the amazing things and capabilities you have both within the internal system of the federal management emergency response systems here that exist in the city and the state and the federal level and what the military can bring. our chain of care will only be as strong as its weakest link and my job is to make sure that if you call us or if you need us in the maritime services that our links will be as strong as yours and your job in the civic and again, i applaud the amazing men and women of our law enforcement agencies and our emergency response teams, you are my heroes. you are the ones that run in when everybody else is supposed to run out. and we see the drama all the way from 9-11 through katrina to whatever the next catastrophe is going to be. we live in a nuclear age. who would have predicted the united states would be fully invested in a response in japan? who would have predicted several years ago when a tsunami hit a country in indonesia which was predominat

, in the big tier one and two cities, they have 2176 kfcs. but in the smaller cities, 1167. as far as i'm concerned, yum's real problem is not china. there is yum's fast growing international business and then there is the slow growth domestic business. for the last year the company has shut down more stores than it opened. i'm saying right here right now give me a fee if it happened. do you think that is nuts? that is what altria did with phillip morris international. fast growing international one, and they decided to break up, a domestic stock and the growth stock in the form of phillip morris. i think yum should be the same thing. the business is sizzling. and now that taco bell has turned things around, i think that the domestic business has enough to turn around as well. right now, yum trades at 18 times earnings. if you split up the breakup, i think it will get a higher multiple to the point where the sum of the two parts might be more $77 per share. look, even if yum doesn't break itself up, china is going to resume its long march upward. to me it seems like a recipe for a highe
